| This time we cover the new Mandriva Flash release, an interesting research 
| project, Mandriva in Nicaragua, and more.

| One of the strengths of Mandriva has long been its popularity and strong 
| community base all around the world, in areas not always considered by the 
| mainstream Linux press. Continuing this fine tradition, June 14th saw a 
| Mandriva installfest and conference in Nicaragua, arranged by the Nicaraguan 
| Mandriva user community. The event was well-attended, and even had press 
| coverage in a popular Nicaraguan newspaper (link in Spanish). Many people 
| brought their systems to have Mandriva Linux installed, and many copies of 
| Mandriva Linux Free and One were distributed to those who couldn't bring 
| their systems to the event.

| While many today see Linux as a "just download it" or "just buy it" product,
| it hasn't always been that way. Installfests were actually the norm. Well,
